Chris Brown Withdraws From Kids' Choice Awards

3/11/2009 2:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris BrownChris Brown is officially letting Nickelodeon off the hook, and taking himself off the list of nominees at the upcoming Kids' Choice Awards.

In a statement, his rep says:

"Chris very much appreciates the support of his fans and the honor they have paid him in the way of nominations for Favorite Male Singer and Favorite Song.

Unfortunately, the controversy surrounding the incident last month has shifted the focus from the music to whether he should be allowed to be among those nominated.

While Chris would like to speak to his fans directly about this and other issues, pending legal proceedings preclude his doing so at this time. Once the matter before him has been resolved, he intends to do so."


A rep for Nickelodeon tells us: "We are confirming that Chris Brown has decided to withdraw his nominations from the Kids' Choice Awards. We agree with and respect his decision, and are looking forward to presenting a great event for our audience."

I am so amazed that people are ready to send this child to jail. That is not going to get him the help that he needs. I think that is is a great artist and I will continue to support his career. He is a human that makes mistakes as we all do. He is not a role model for my to male children because I have taught my kids to idolize themselves and ant others. Chris Brown was extremely wrong for putting his hands on a female no matter what the reason.....the reality is that this is truly a private matter. I don't see people no longer supporting Amy Whinehouse for her domestic dispute this past week or football fans no longer supporting there teams that have drug users and drunk drivera on them. Think about how one sided this is.

AS HE SHOULD!! My little nieces and nephews LOVED him! He was the image of COOL all the way with his music and dance to that whole generation. We had to talk to them about what he did to Rhianna. Yes they heard about it at school. The kids were all talking about it. It became a good lesson on what domestic abuse is, and why it should NEVER be tolerated. Its too bad we had to ruin their innocence so young. This talk could have waited a few more years, and they could have been spared the letdown of having their role model DISSAPOINT them in such a horrible way!!!

Chris 'Beat Her Down' Brown just pulled a PR stunt aided by Nickelodeon to make himself look good. How could he himself contemplate withdrawing less than a week after he went online asking kids to vote for him the day after being charged with two counts of felonies. This guy is a jerk. Nickelodeon ought to have removed him.

been reading all these comments and i just want to say a) PLEASE dont speak for all of us when you say no1 will buy his records again, cos I certainly would as would a lot of people, b) people who are famous have done a lot worse things in the past and they have stayed successful,c) what makes everyone think they have the right to ORDER these two people to do anything in their private lives? you dont OWN them, I like chris purely for the talent he has, to say he hasnt is simply ignorant, and if some1 is finished because of a wrong doing then youd best not buy any music/watch any films/ read any books cos everyone has something they have done in the past... lastly we have NO say over what these 2 do, you have no power to make everyone hate them just because u do.. so have ur opinion speak ur mind but please dont pretendu speak for everyone.

GOOD WE DO NOT NEED his bad influence around children. it would teach them that hitting women is ok and that is NOT OK. I'm glad he won't be around kids right now. and I hope his girlfriend is NOT having a baby has the romer mill is saying!! He does NOT need kids till he gets help that woman ARE NOT Punching BAGS.!!!

NOOO!!, why dont you all get a life and LEAVE THEM ALONE, HE DESERVES TO BE NOMINATED, and you all shouldnt be mixing his career with his personal relationship, him and rihanna have moved on, if they are which are the ones in this situation why cant you all, I would like to see more adults stop crushing down on these young people who are in a self destructed mode and reach out to help them. Why when we see people in a state of needing help we beat on them instead of helping them see what is going on in their lives? I bet many of you love to go around acting as if you are a good person well why don't you show it by being forgiving for someone who obviously made a mistake of some sort so
don't sit around judging and finger pointing - but do something that can help in a positive manner.

Those of who think that there are worse acts than beating a woman in her face continuously, biting her choking her, nearly killing her and leaving her to perish must get your head examined!!! The only things worse than this is murder. Violence against females such as child sexual molestation and pedeophilia are on par with this act! They are committed by people with twisted minds and they need at least three years of therapy.

Contrary to what sites like TMZ had previously reported, Rihanna did not tell police that she was the victim of “escalating violence.” TMZ reported: “Multiple law enforcement sources tell TMZ, the night of the attack Rihanna told cops she was the victim of escalating violence — and the perp was Brown.”

However, a source involved in the investigation tells Hollyscoop exclusively that in the reports, Rihanna confessed there has only been two other incidences in which she felt threatened, but this was the first time Chris retaliated. Rihanna told investigators that the first incident occurred in Europe three months ago. It was a verbal dispute, which led to Rihanna slapping Chris Brown. In self-defense, Chris put her up “against the wall” and told her to calm down.

The second incident occurred when the couple was visiting Rihanna’s family in her native Barbados back in August 2008. She described the incident as a verbal dispute, and added that no one was assaulted. According to the source involved in the investigation, the night of the alleged attack, Rihanna attacked Chris after reading a text message sent to him by a former lover.

THIS WAS ON ANOTHER WEBSITE.. MAYBE PEOPLE SHUD CHECK OUT MORE THAN ONE SITE TO SEE WOTS BEING REPORTED...

That's great he did that he is doing that. Now why is it that people also remember the bad things but not the good things.
